October 9th is almost here, and with it so is opening night for the Preds for the 2010-11 season! We've got a ton of reasons to be excited about the upcoming season. We have a very solid team, solid leadership, and extremely good management! Now's the time for we, the people, to step up.
This is the year that we need to get behind this team 100%. This is the year that we need to make noise all around the NHL. This is the year that we need to prove all of the doubters wrong. And I think I've got a pretty good way that we could start that process.
On opening night, I think it would be so awesome if we got as many people to be in the stands for warm-ups as we possibly can. I've ran this idea by the guys at section303.com and they're all for it as well. Just imagine how awesome it would be for the guys to look up while warming up, and see the stands packed. I think it would set the tone for a very successful year,and it would let the boys know that we are behind them fully. So if you're going to opening night on October 9th against Anaheim, try to get there as early as you can so you can be there for warm-ups. If you have rally towels, bring them. Let's create an unbelievable atmosphere for opening night. Because I've found one consistency in all of the years that the Predators have been here: If we show up and get loud and support them, they always give maximum effort on the ice. And let's be honest. If this team is giving maximum effort and playing well, the Ducks are going to have a hard time beating us. Anybody in the league would have a hard time beating us.
